Supreme Court to hear plea to cancel offline board exams

New Delhi: On Tuesday, the Supreme Court agreed to hear a plea seeking the cancellation of physical/’offline’ examinations for Classes 10 and 12 as conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), along with different state boards and their counterparts in the form of the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) and the Indian School Certificate (ISC) examinations.

A bench headed by Justice A.M. Khanwilkar asked the advocate of the petitioner to serve a copy of the petition to the CBSE and all state boards.

The apex court agreed to list the matter for Wednesday after the counsel of the petitioner sought an urgent listing of the case and argued that classes in several regions of the country were not being conducted physically even after the COVID-19 restrictions had been lifted.

The petition was filed by child rights activist Anubha Shrivastava Sahai, who intends on legally compelling the different boards to issue notifications regarding an alternate mode of assessment instead of offline exams.
